Railway Innovation Workshop – Business Opportunities in modern technology 

30. may 2018 

At this year’s Railway innovation workshop, in addition to new classical railway innovation opportunities, we will also show how space services can contribute to rail operation, and finally how IT solutions also means cyber security challenges. We will look at the threats and opportunities in this new railway relevant area.

Innovation is a prerequisite for business success. The workshop with an international focus visualizes the leading edge of this trend with the invitation to become an attractive partner in this large market. Opportunities in using space services as coping with the growing cyber threats will also be part of this workshop.

The event will be held at Technical University of Denmark (DTU), Matematiktorvet, Building 303A, aud. 45, 2800 Kgs. Lyngby.

Participation and one exhibition stand (café table/space for 1-2 roll-ups) is free. No-show fee DKK 500,-.
